Ingredients

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

6 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2/3 cup olive oil

2 cups hazelnuts

1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts

2 cups dried cranberries

Directions

Special equipment:
a food processor or mandoline with a shredder attachment
  1. Whisk the Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a medium bowl. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until emulsified. Set aside.
  2. Toast the hazelnuts in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, tossing a few times, until golden brown spots start to form, 3 to 4 minutes. Immediately transfer to a cutting board to stop the cooking and roughly chop them. 
  3. Use the shredder attachment on a food processor or a mandoline to shave the Brussels sprouts. Put the sprouts in a large bowl and add the hazelnuts, cranberries, 2 teaspoons salt and a bunch of grinds of black pepper. Drizzle the dressing over top (it will feel like a lot of dressing, but trust me, it needs it!) and toss until well combined.
